The Dorothy Motel is Banff’s first boutique motel offering ‘accommodation made simple’. Choose from a Superior Hotel Room, with either 1 King or 2 Queen Beds. This quaint motel adjacent to the woods, peacefully located at the start of Banff Avenue, is surrounded by forest with the majestic Cascade Mountain in the background. The rooms include everything you need for your next mountain retreat; a mini-refrigerator and microwave, in-room coffee and tea to get you your caffeine fix when you need it to get you kickstarted for the day, in-room safe, air conditioning, and complimentary Wi-Fi and parking. The bathrooms offer a stand-up shower, hairdryer and bath products from Rocky Mountain Soap. And yes, Banff’s newest motel is a pet-friendly, so take your furry friends with you. Bring your own bicycles, or rent some from Ultimate Sports, on-site bike storage and a fix-it station are available as well. And after a day of exploring the stunning scenery of Banff, enjoy the evening in the courtyard on the terrace with seating. We offer mobile check in or at the Banff Caribou Lodge & Spa, just down the street (521 Banff Avenue).

We stayed for one night at this Motel. The room was spacious, modern and well appointed! It's a super quiet location too. The bed was very comfortable too. Our room was on the mail floor and had an entrance from the outside and an additional one leading to the courtyard.

Charming, renovated motel off the beaten path, located on the far end of Banff Ave. 15 min walk to downtown. Quiet and clean. Fast free wifi and free parking. Has mini fridge and microwave. White wooden paneling walls, updated honeycomb tile bathroom, and comfortable quality mattress. Rocky Mountain Soap Factory toiletries. Feels like a quaint country cottage except the hideous camo flooring. Check in is either mobile (use phone's Bluetooth to unlock door) or at Elk Lodge 2 blocks away. No on-site service desk. Affordably priced and a good value.

Cet hôtel s’appel désormais le Dorothy’s Motel et vient tout juste d’être complètement rénové. La chambre et très belle et propre. Nous avons adoré la déco, très moderne. Les lits sont également confortables. Nous avions un chambre avec accès direct sur la cour intérieure. Cela doit être agréable en saison estivale, il semble y avoir un espace pour faire un feu. Le motel est situé tout près du début de la Banff Avenue. Environ 15 minutes de marche afin d’atteindre le centre-ville. 10/10 pour le rapport qualité/prix. 84$/nuit directement dans Banff, on ne peut pas demander mieux.
